Soccer Hub Elite Academy

SoccerHub Elite is a weekly professional training programme, based at Sandylands Sports Centre, Skipton and Marley Coaching Centre, Keighley. Originally formed due to the success of SoccerHub’s Weekly Soccer Courses in developing players that have now joined Professional Football Clubs, an Elite group was set up to provide further Advanced Coaching for those players already showing a good level of footballing ability.

The Elite programme is now an invited group of players selected from SoccerHub’s Weekly Soccer Courses, Holiday Camps or progressing from the SoccerHub Development group. In addition to this, some talented players have been identified by SoccerHub coaching staff in Grassroots football.


Soccerhub Pathway

SoccerHub Elite:

All members of staff work at Professional Football Clubs – SoccerHub Elite staff all have current roles within Professional Football Club Academies – Bradford City, Burnley Football Club, Leeds United and Preston North End,

All coaching staff are UEFA/FA qualified & DBS checked – the sessions carried out by these coaches replicate those that take place in Professional Football Academies, centred around Technical and Tactical development of players, whilst maintaining a friendly and safe environment for children.

Groups of selected players that are at a similar level of footballing ability – advanced players looking to further their footballing ability are able to develop their skills together with similar players, in a more structured, professional coaching session.

Small groups of players – allowing more dedicated coaching time to each individual and providing each player more time on the ball in each training drill.

Coaching takes place on a large artificial pitch – 4G surface provides the ideal surface to develop players technical ability with the ball. New technology has been embraced in the training equipment, making use of motion sensitive training aids..

Opportunities to play competitive games as a SoccerHub Elite Team – SoccerHub Elite have a comprehensive games schedule against Professional Clubs across the country, as well as frequently entering age group teams into tournaments throughout the season.

• Feedback and Development Programme – All players are given an individual learning programme and regular feedback to help engage them in their own progression.
• Specialised training – SoccerHub Elite employ coaches able to specialise in goalkeeping and age specific conditioning, which can often be neglected and carried out by ‘general coaches’ in many programmes.
